Speaking to IMDb, King Khan said, “It was never part of the script. It was a part of the get-up that was a part of the script. I just chose the bald look out of laziness.”
“I said, ‘yeah, then I don’t have to wear 2 hours of this makeup, can I just go bald?’ So I think it came out of that. I had reservations because I showed the promo to some friends and they were like, ‘Arey yaar! It looks very scary, girls won’t like you.’ So I hope girls like me. I hope girls like bald men. I like bald girls,” he said in humour.
